Vile Ghast

Dread shade description is the following one : “Dread Shade now increases poison damage instead of necrotic damage, and converts added necrotic damage from the base skill and this tree to chance to poison on hit”.

Is the base skill mentionned :

  • dread shade itself (meaning no other added necro dmg would increase poison chance for minions) ;
  • the minion skill benefiting from the dread shade aura ? (meaning added source of necro dmg to this specific minion skill would increase their poison chance)


Yes, that’s what “this tree” means as the node is in the Dread Shade tree. Your minions have their own skill trees.

The “base skill” bit means the base skill (ie, the unspecialised skill).
